Meet the Board: Patricia Hamm - Central County Fire & Rescue

Meet the Board: Patricia Hamm

As a lifelong resident of St. Peters and treasurer of the CCFR Board of Directors, Patricia Hamm is dedicated to ensuring the District’s tax dollars are used efficiently and effectively to keep the community safe.

“The Fire District is the community’s toolbox, ready to respond no matter what the emergency,” Hamm says. “As a board member, I want to make sure our firefighters, EMTs and paramedics have the training and tools they need to do the job right and get the best outcomes in an emergency situation, while also being good stewards of our community’s investment in the District.”

Hamm became a member of the board 11 years ago because she wanted to make a difference in the growing community that she and her husband, three children and a grandchild call home.

She says that the board is committed to looking for ways to improve and adapt the Fire District as the St. Peters area grows and develops.

“As we look to the future, our District is going to start to notice a change in those who serve our community,” she says, noting that many CCFR employees have been on duty for more than 25 years, since before the District was started in 1998. “I want to make sure that we are prepared for the next generation of first responders here in the St. Peters area.

“We are fortunate to have an exceptional team of professionals, and a community that is the lifeblood of the quality emergency services this team can provide. For that we are grateful, and will do whatever it takes to not let them down.
